Dungeon Keeper 2

Let me just say, if you have never played this PC title before, you absolutely HAVE to. It is one of the best games for the PC I've ever played. It is circa 2000, so it's not very hard to obtain by any means and doesn't have much in the way of requirements. Yet, I am hard pressed to find a game that occupies me more. This game has beautiful gameplay, I have yet to meet someone who played it and did not get addicted to it for at least a few weeks.

Let me recommend this title. You can get it quite legally from ebay for five or so dollars, or other ways (I don't see much of an issue there since the series was discontinued due to studio misdirection, and the title hasn't been officially supported for at least two years.)

Give this game a few hours, and it will take a few weeks.

Yeah, that's the most common response. This game had a pretty quiet release, and in an era where PC games weren't as publicly touted as now.

Edit: A review page showing quite a few reviews of the game. Read for yourself if you might be interested.

DK2 rocked, I agree with you

and I dont think it had a quiet release at all.. it got a lot of press when it was released

it is a fun game though

too bad the graphics are so out of date.. boohoo!

The game looks absolutely stellar on my radeon x800xl. I dunno, maybe it's doing something behind the scenes, but the only thing about the game that looks old is the character models--and only because they're low poly-count.

Dungeon Keeper was teh shitznazz! It's was hours of fun just to torture the poor demons And when you got the possession ability, oh man, you could practically run over a horde of invaders with just one lizard if you knew how.

But it was a long time ago i can't remember much past that, i wish i could find it somewhere, im sure it could run even on my geforce 440 mx smoothly.

Im retarded... err i mean retired!

That seems to be the emphasis on video games. A good example is Doom 3. The graphics are cool, but the game itself is only fair.

While I agree that graphics aren't too important, some games age better than others, and plenty of old games are just plain hard to look at.
